Two things that happened on Saturday while Glenn's parents were visiting

I had a soccer game scheduled for 8:30 on Saturday morning. Glenn's parents kindly offered to watch the Violet so Glenn could come watch! We drove out there, and my whole team was there. And no one else was there. None of the other teams for the other games, not the team we were supposed to play, no refs. We still don't know what happened. However, Glenn and I took advantage of the situation and went out to breakfast, igoring the fact that we had eaten breakfast before we left for the game. It was our first date in ages! We actually went back to Jacks and Joe, the place we went for his birthday a couple days before. It was delicious again!

Later that afternoon, we went out with Glenn's parents and Violet and explored a part of downtown I've been wanting to see!
It is called Grand Central Market. It is basically a huge food market, and it has been there since the early 1900s. There are vendors with TONS of inexpensive fresh produce, spices, dried rice and beans, etc. You get free parking if you spend $10, so we did! For our ten dollars, I got:
1 watermelon
4 red bell peppers
1 bunch of fresh basil
1 zucchini
1 chunk of fresh ginger
like 5 heads of garlic
2 pints of black berries...
I can't think of anything else. Maybe that was it. Oh yeah, like 3 bananas. Maybe some other stuff.

It was so fun, and I love whenever we get to know this city a little better!
